Jennifer Lopez demands $3000 diamond headphones to block the sound of poverty


These are all photos of Jennifer Lopez in Monaco yesterday, at the World Music Awards. She not only showed up for the red carpet (in the black and white gown), she performed (in the minidress and boots) and she won some award (in the gold and black gown). Three costume changes for one event? Our old J.Lo is back! Oh, and how. The Daily Mirror got their hands on Jennifer’s rider (her list of demands) for her performance in Monaco, and it’s priceless. She needed a helicopter on standby… just because. She needed $3000 daimond-encrusted headphones… just to keep the noise of the motor boat (re: poverty) down. Oh, and don’t even ask for her specifications for the motorboat:

When J-Lo agreed to sing at the World Music Awards she was determined everyone would dance to her tune. Before gearing up for the star-studded event in Monte Carlo last night – where guests included Peter Andre and Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere – Ms Lopez made sure her every whim would be catered for.

We got our paws on her rider as she was ferried by speedboat from Cannes to Monaco – and as far as diva-like demands go, it makes Mariah Carey look small time. As well as a helicopter “on stand-by”, Jennifer, 40, insisted on a custom-fitted speed boat – complete with love seat, faux leather seats and a champagne fridge – oh, and a pair of £3,000 diamond-encrusted headphones to keep the noise of the boat’s motor down.

On her list for when she actually arrived in Monaco was an on-call masseuse, a 12-strong hair and make-up team, a hotel floor to herself and a stretch of private beach.

But when we bumped into the stunning star, who was to receive a WMA gong for Outstanding Contribution to the Arts, she couldn’t have been nicer.

We met Jen as she checked into her five-star hotel with hubby Marc Antony and their twins Emme and Max. And she promptly invited us to join her backstage at the awards.

After ordering a massage, she headed back to her suite, but not before telling us: “Hey ladies, I’ll be seeing you later! Get ready to party.” You’re on.

Our source says: “Jennifer was partying on board Sir Philip Green’s yacht in Cannes before being transferred by speed boat to Monaco for the WMA. Her people requested that she have an entire floor of the hotel to herself to ensure she wasn’t hassled. Privacy was a main concern so she had a piece of beach roped off, too. She spent the morning playing there with the kids. But she declined the offer of a butler, insisting she was happy to do things for herself.”

Like what – brush her own teeth?

[From The Mirror]

So she’s still lives in a world that guarantees her diamond encrusted headphones to block out the sounds of poverty. She’s a diva, alright? And a diva can withstand any recession.

Meanwhile, I just can’t get enough of these photos. Jennifer really does think she’s God’s gift. Bless her heart.

    her outfits are so…unflattering.

  2. Ursaline says:

    I know I should hate that gold dress, but there is something about the cohesiveness of the mulitple colors and textures that I like.

  3. Karma says:

    Ugh, it’s even worse than $3000…more like almost 6k unless the dollar’s made some sort of crazy comeback against the pound.

  4. Lucinda says:

    That’s what I think too about the gold dress. I love it but I’m thinking I should probably hate it. But I don’t. Someone out there will say it’s a total train wreck and it probably is but I really like it. LOL

  5. NayNay says:

    F’ her. Who the heck does she think she is. She cannot sing, at all. I would have dumped her ass immediately.

  6. ams1 says:

    LOL @ u 2 dress lovers! at least you know you SHOULD hate it b/c it is HORRIBLE!!!

  7. Just a Poster says:

    Ursaline I agree about the dress. I can’t explain why, but I do like it.

    Now for the short one… IMO fluff near the pussbone is never a good thing! LOL

  8. LindyLou says:

    That dress looks like one big mess to me but hey, I’m not a diva so my tastes are different. Her rider is crazy – diamond encrusted headphones?!?! Really Jennifer?? I just don’t get it….again, maybe I would if I were a diva.

  9. me2also says:

    Go away, JLo.

  10. Annicka says:

    The rider says £3,000, which is actually around $4300.

  11. GatsbyGal says:

    A helicopter on standby…why exactly? In case the audience turns into zombies and she has to make a swift air getaway?

  12. Lady Nightshade says:

    What is she even performing, she doesn’t have a record deal anymore does she?

  13. Chelly says:

    Maybe she shld forget the $3000.00 headphone and someone just get her a $3.00 muzzle that Im sure we’d ALL appreciate

  14. Leticia says:

    few of the celebrities have real talent anymore, so at least JLo keeps things interesting with her spicy demands and outfits.

  15. ogechi says:

    “She spent the morning playing there with the kids. But she declined the offer of a butler, insisting she was happy to do things for herself.”

    I love Jlo. She makes me accept the fact that with hard-work and persistence, the sky is your limit. Go Jlo and enjoy the fruit of your labour!

  16. ol cranky says:

    what does the motorboat have to do with poverty?

  17. Risa says:

    it looks like a jellyfish is on her crotch… lol

  18. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I’m not sure. Maybe ‘poverty’ refers to the crew–‘the help’?

  19. Tracy says:

    Looking like Bouncy…I mean Beyonce….hmmmm…for some reason I also tend to think of Latoya Jackson when I look at “LaLopez”.Oh well, if u can then do, I would

  20. Constance says:

    He is so fug! I mean she… Her husband is a corpse, but that’s nothing new. She is so delusional, it’s hysterical! I can’t believe they let her sing and gave her a trophy for not winning anything. Is she actually still relevant outside the US?

  21. CandyKay says:

    I agree. I think motorboat = poverty is a bit of a stretch.

    Outboard motors are loud, and it’s a great idea to wear some ear protection, diamond encrusted or not.

  22. Constance says:

    Questionz: How were her children transported to Monte Carlo? Did they also get on the boat? Did they (GASP) NOT receive $4300 a pair headphones?

    I personally think she’s a puss-puss for not being able to handle a bit of motor noise and if her children had to listen to it, SHAME.

  23. canadianchick says:

    The outfits are dreckitude. But as her starpower dims,she should try to go out in style, I guess.

  24. Oi says:

    Do the diamonds enhance the function of the headphones?

  25. lucy2 says:

    I don’t think there’s a whole lot of poverty in Monaco!

    JLo is absurd. I think it’s funny this story has come out, true or not, because she’s been trying really hard to downplay that part of her image, and it’s not working.

    I’m pretty sure I hate the dress.

  26. QB says:

    Her performance look is horrible , she needs to stop it.

    Hard Labour ?? really?? You mean with a big ass ,autotune and trasforming yourselve into your new man the sky is the limit.

  27. bros says:

    this is an incomprehensible story. what does an outboard motor in monaco have to do with poverty.

  28. Ally says:

    That Monaco award usually means your career is on a downward slope. They always seem to give it to someone who used to be a huge pop star, but that people have stopped caring about.

    I can’t believe anyone would agree to such a ridiculous rider, even Monaco.

  29. Victoria says:

    Oh man I didnt even read the article when I saw THAT DRESS!!!! Is she high?!

  30. I should be working says:

    *whispering* I like the dress at the top 🙂 Kaiser, you are hilarious for those pictures…

  31. Jeri says:

    OD’d on her back in the Bennifer days. The only block Jenny’s from is Donald Trumps.

  32. denise says:

    she really needs to leave the singing to her husband.

  33. malame says:

    just when i was trying to like her a little she blows it up

  34. jover says:

    Agee Letica,few celebrities have talent, but why should no-talent JLO get a pass for this spoiled, selfish behaviour? SHe shouldn’t. SHe’s junk, her “music” is junk and will be forgotten if it hasn’t already. She lip synchs so how can anyone call her a true singer. It’s a shame Selena died so young;she could sing, but given the idiocy and low standards of today’s music world, I don’t know whether she could have avoided being turned into a crappy albeit more talented version of JHO just to garner enough attention to sell records. BTW, anyone know how her Backup Plan movie fared. Seems to have disappeared – good, JHO needs to do the same.

  35. MissyA says:

    She’s a legend in her own mind. . .

  36. BlahBlah says:

    Please, for the love of God, make her go away already. Like with that last movie of hers…

  37. snowball says:

    Was it even a month or so ago that she did this interview where she sniffled that she was so misunderstood, she never was a diva and those insane riders being passed around had nothing to do with her, she never asked for those things?

    She has hideous taste. I think I like one out of a hundred things she wears. She does have a nice body but she crams it into such strange things. There’s always a little too much going on – too much pattern, too many accessories, too much hair, too much crap attached to the dress.

  38. Cinderella says:

    She may not ask for these things personally, but her people do on her behalf, and she certainly lets them. Nothing has changed with her.

    I guess the “I’m just like you guys” approach didn’t mean shit. Comeback FAIL.

  39. WTF?!? says:

    Why are her boots two obviously different lengths?

    Diamond-encrusted noise-blockers? Puh-LEASE!

    At least she only asked for a faux-leather loveseat.
    She *is* just Jenny from the Block, after all.

  40. Mary Anne says:

    I used to live in The Bronx, too, a long, long time ago. When other ethnic groups started moving in towards the end of the ’50’s beginning of the ’60’s, our family moved to another state, within driving distance to New York. I never liked her, never. If that shooting hadn’t happened in a club, when she was with Sean “Puffy” Combs, she’d still be with him. Anyone or anything to build up her career. I had hoped she’d retired to be a mother and leave us in peace. YES, it is a shame about Selena – a true artist.

  41. aury says:

    i’ve never liked her. & just how in the hell does someone who can’t sing or act get an award for contribution to the arts, anyway?

  42. Missfit says:

    I liked her in the beginning when she was REAL, and that didn’t last and she hasn’t been real for the longest time. Thanks to the Selena movie, that got her started and she is where she’s at and most likely f*cking Sean Puffy Diddy, whatever the heck his name is, that got her further up. If Selena were alive, she’d be where JLO is that, but BETTER and people would be like…JLO who? I DO think JLO is a cute actress, even though she does the same acting in like every movie, like many other actress, like Jennifer Aniston does the same acting, blah, boring,lol. But JLO is all cute, sweet, funny and “real” that you think (aww) and you’d hope she’d be like that in real life, which unfortunately she’s not. lol

  43. Beth says:

    Why is she performing? I don’t think Jennifer signed with another label so her album won’t be released anytime soon.

  44. Gaga Fab says:

    An award for the arts? You have got to be kidding me. What art has J-Lo ever made with her music.. They will give an award to anyone these days

  45. yae says:

    This is why copyright laws and internet copyright infringement of music should be a TOP priority in the world.

    It should be enforced with an iron claw, using tax payer $$.

  46. justjanek says:

    I’m on board with the love/hate issue of the 1st dress. I mean, it turns into feathers! So I should hate it–but there’s something about the colors & textures that I really like…
    Now the rest of the pics are hideous. She looks out of shape, which I know she’s not. She’s got batwing arms, a barrel torso & fat legs and she needs Heidi Montag’s back fat surgeon. Having said all that, I’d still trade bodies with her in a nano-second. Her “imperfections” are only by H’Wood standards…

  47. jewels says:

    Never see the beoch donate no kinda money. Just buy up stuff and brag. Need needs to stay off stage and stick with her acting since those skills have increased and her voice is hideous.

  48. lway says:

    The last pic makes me laugh …. she looks like a mommy bird with that outfit and that face.

    Those outfits are unflattering. You’d think that with that amount of money should would get herself some awesome outfits….. instead…this

  49. DC_1 says:

    People can hate on her all day long but the fact of the matter is she can make those demands and get them. You can call her a whore, slut, etc but you can’t call her broke. She is flawless!

  50. Slymm27 says:

    @DC, u took the words right out of my mouth. She makes those demands because she can!! Deal with it.

  51. kit says:

    I bet she doesn’t look good naked anymore!!

  52. Jennifer Lopez is a disgrace says:

    Jennifer Lopez is so overated.

  53. Jennifer Lopez is a disgrace says:

    From the time Jennifer was a flygirl I have always hated her sytle just about everything about her. To think that she got famous off of a true sweetheart and humble, down to earth, home body type, Mexican-American young woman Selena. JLO is a disgrace to Selenas family and career. Basically, Jsolow became famous off of somebody elses misfortune (death). I cant even imagine JLo mowing her own lawn like Selena did or going to a mid class neighorhood restaurant to hang out. (not to mention JLO looks like a transexual)

  54. Ugh I can’t believe anyone would spend $3000 on headphones. Even J-Lo. I mean, what the hell is the point anyway? This is just one more example (in a library full of them) that J-Lo is beyond help.

    And yes, she does look a bit like a transexual in those pictures. :/

  55. There are definitely plenty of details like that to take into consideration. That could be a nice point to deliver up. I supply the ideas above as normal inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you carry up where an important thing can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round things like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both girls and boys really feel the impact of just a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
